This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.

Decided on March 2, 2012

PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., WESTON and RIOS, JJ

The order denied plaintiff's motion for leave to enter a default judgment and granted defendant's cross motion to open its default and compel plaintiff to accept defendant's late answer.

ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs.

In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, plaintiff appeals from an order which denied its motion for leave to enter a default judgment and granted defendant's cross motion to open its default and compel plaintiff to accept defendant's late answer. Upon a review of the record, we find that the Civil Court did not improvidently exercise its discretion when it denied plaintiff's motion for leave to enter a default judgment and granted defendant's cross motion to open its default and compel plaintiff to accept defendant's late answer (see Westchester Med. Ctr. v Allstate Ins. Co., 80 AD3d 695 [2011]; Covaci v Whitestone Constr. Corp., 78 AD3d 1108 [2010]). Accordingly, the order is affirmed.

Pesce, P.J., Weston and Rios, JJ., concur. Decision Date: March 02, 2012
